In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that if the current injury situation at Liverpool does not improve he will be open to new arrivals in January.
The German said: "I don't know what will happen in January, if we have more injuries it will be important, of course. But at this moment, there's no decision."
The Reds have recently been linked to German wonderkid Leroy Sane, Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Marseille defender Nicolas Nkoulou, giving fans hope that another busy transfer window could be round the corner.

Since Klopp's arrival on Merseyside, he has persisted with Lucas in the holding midfield role but, unfortunately, there are no other out-and-out defensive midfielders at the club for rotation.
Emre Can, whilst an excellent prospect, is unreliable given his inclination to make marauding runs into the final third. Gundogan, therefore, would be an ideal signing given he fits straight into Klopp's renowned philsophies.
Following former manager Brendan Rodgers' arrival at the club in 2012, the Anfield side have been in transition season after season after losing key players and rebuilding their squad.
Since the arrival of Klopp, however, there is hope amongst fans that he will steady the ship and look towards a balance between youth and multi-million pound signings. Youngsters Allan Rodrigues de Souza, Ryan Kent and Jordan Rossiter look extremely promising and, under the German, could see their chances of first team football increased.
It remains the case, though, that Klopp has not been left with the resources capable of a top four finish. With just one winger in the squad - Jordan Ibe - and one defensive midfielder - Lucas - a few signings just to freshen up the squad would go down well with anyone associated with the club.
Klopp's pulling factor will be key in bringing talent to Anfield and turning Liverpool back into the title challenging side whom they once were.
